Re: moving to Japan

Wow, that looks like a great place to live! Besides the nature (which I love), is there anything else interesting in Nagano Prefecture? Matsumoto Castle has survived over the centuries from earthquakes and firebombings. Plus, there is this place, , this place, and this place for when I want to buy ...

Re: moving to Japan

It's a teaching job. I'll be in the midst of the beautiful mountains of Nagano Prefecture, where my wife is from. Here's some pics of the area.

moving to Japan

I was just offered a job to teach English in Japan! However, they are looking for somebody to start in mid-January, so my wife and I will need to scramble to make this happen. But oh wow, this is a dream come true. I've been seriously considering relocating back to Japan for at least the past five y...

Re: The Discotek appreciation thread.

Keep in mind that they aren't paying a bunch of Canadian voice actors to mangle the Japanese names. If they don't provide an English dub, that is such a huge drastic reduction in costs. Heck, fansubbers do the work for free. Plus, those who are buying the videos don't care about English dubbing anyw...

Live-action Lupin III fan film

Think of the concept of "anime fan movie" and how retarded that must be. Now watch this link, and be pleasantly surprised: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOrugmROSNE&feature=related Isn't it PERFECT? The characters are not only recognizable, but perfect! It's a shame that Hollywood can't ever seem t...

The ill-fated ImaginAsian DVD releases of TMS anime shows

Back in 2007, the ImaginAsian channel started showing classic TMS anime shows: Super Dimension Century Orguss, Cat's Eye, and Nobody's Boy Remi. I don't have any Asian cable stations where I live, but the good thing is that ImaginAsian released these shows on DVD. The cool thing they did was that th...

Re: The Discotek appreciation thread.

Wow. Galaxy Express? So that's why the torrents for the GE TV show disappeared a few years back! I'd heard that Galaxy Express had been licensed, but I figured that somebody was just going to sit on it and not do anything with it. I knew that Hokuto no Ken (FOTNS) had been released on DVD, but I cou...

Re: Laserdiscs

I recall there being different LD releases. I have the theatrical release. I'm pretty sure that I wanted to get that one because then I could have the original theatrical ending as well as Flashback, which I also have on a separate LD. Well, it's the same song. It's just that the version I have con...

Re: Greg's introduction

I had repied to AnimeSennin's first reply, but maybe I must have closed the window without submitting the message. I'd like to have the AnimePast Links page be a central place for links to all the great pages that the members of this forum are working on. Would you mind if I stuck links to your page...

Re: Laserdiscs

What exactly's on that Dirty Pair set? I also see that you have a different version of Macross the movie than I do. Does that one have Flashback on it? The Dirty Pair LD box set is the TV series + OVA series. There were several Macross DYRL LDs released. One was pan & scan (I believe), one was lett...
